Dedicated to Water Analysis
The Cecil AquaQuest water quality test spectrophotometer has been specially designed to cover the complete requirements of water analysis spectrophotometers. Both visible range and UV/visible range instruments are offered, each with or without an integral printer for convenient presentation of results, without the extra space required by an external printer.
Fast and Easy to Operate
Choosing a water quality test method complete with the appropriate sample pathlength could not be simpler. It takes only about 15 seconds to select the method and get the instrument set up and ready for measurement. Quick change sample holders each accommodating more than one sample pathlength add to convenience and speed up operation.
Cecil spectrophotometers are well known for their durability. The lamp is the most expensive consumable part on a spectrophotometer. A Cecil lamp will last for over 3 years, in contrast to a typical spectrophotometer whose lamps need changing multiple times per year. Over the life of the Cecil instrument this can amount to significant cost savings. Cecil takes pride in the lowest instrument maintenance costs in the industry.
Use with Any Brand Test Kit
AquaQuest can be used with any manufacturer’s water quality test kits. Save money by avoiding a spectrophotometer that locks you into expensive consumable contracts.
Exceptional Optical Performance and Stability
Superb performance is the result of the excellent specifications of the AquaQuest. Exceptionally high stability, low stray light, low noise and high wavelength-setting precision ensure that reliable and accurate measurements may be made to 3 Absorbance units.
Whatever special needs your laboratory may have, the AquaQuest spectrophotometer offers the flexibility, power and performance required. Wavelength scanning, cell programming, batch sampling, wavelength programming, time course plotting and reaction kinetics are all available.
All instruments are completely programmed for approximately 150 water quality test methods based on the proven range of Merck 'Spectroquant' test kits. Users may also develop their own methods and calibrations to be stored in security-protected memory for instant recall and use at any time.
Cecil will set up the analyzer so that at start-up it will go immediately to the wavelength of interest. There is no charge for this customization, a real convenience to those who use only one or two methods.
Cecil offers a complete range of sampling accessories. All instruments are fitted as standard with a special dual sample holder designed to accommodate both 10mm rectangular cuvettes and 16mm reaction tubes as supplied with many Merck test kits; no need to change holder when switching between the two. Sample holders take only seconds to change without the use of any tool. More advance sampling options include the sipette system, automatic cell changers, and batch sampling. For a more extensive description of sampling options request a brochure.
Understanding the 3 Rs + L of an Analytical Balance
Selecting the correct analytical balance for precise weighing is not an easy task. We’ve covered several key points in previous posts but it’s always a good idea to provide a refresher course – especially as it relates to terminology that is sometimes confusing yet important. In this case it’s the 3 Rs: readout, repeatability and
A Belt and Suspenders Approach to Safe Vaccine Storage
Financial loss and general inconvenience are among the costs incurred when vaccine storage refrigeration equipment fails to maintain correct storage temperature. A recent report on the topic noted that some $60,000 worth of vaccines for children were spoiled due to a temperature excursion that was not discovered until three months after the event. Substantial effort
Understanding Traceable Calibration
Tovatech’s FlowCal 5000 HPLC liquid flow meters are shipped with traceable calibration documentation attesting that the equipment accurately displays a flow rate of 1.0 milliliters per minute along with other flow rates from 0.05 to 25.00 ml/min as requested by the customer, all within ±1% of the actual flow rate. The purpose of these flowmeters
Moisture Content Measurement: Where’s the Water?
We’ve discussed the importance of moisture content measurement or moisture analysis in a number of our posts. Moisture content usually relates to meeting specified criteria as to the percentage of water or other liquids in products. Processing equipment such as a drying oven is frequently used on a commercial scale to reach moisture targets. Lab
Selecting Refrigerators for the Chromatography Lab
Liquid chromatography analysis conducted at low temperatures requires a scientific refrigerator specifically designed for the job. A correctly designed chromatography refrigerator provides researchers with the ability to visually monitor the contents and control conditions within the unit without opening the unit’s door – or doors as the case may be. It also provides flexibility such
